Over 50 Proms volunteers gathered on 3 November to hand over donations of £50,000 to our two target charities.
Judith Cohen, who coordinated stewards for the LitFest, presented a cheque for £37,500 to Graham Fisher, chief executive of Toynbee Hall.
Sara Gibbins, our head of catering, gave £12,500 to Judi Guy, community fund-raising manager of the North London Hospice.
Our thanks go to everyone who supported Proms this year, making these donations possible.
We are now planning our 2014 Festival of walks, talks and music, which will take place from 21-29 June.
Proms is a fantastic way of bringing the community together, supporting young artists and celebrating top quality music and literature.
